*DC Offset
*Enhanced EQ (parametric and paragraphic)
*Removed 100% Clipping (including loud bursts/screams from audience)
*Misc. adjustments (i.e. compression, volume/RMS levels, filters, etc.)

**CDWave was used to split tracks.

Total size = 661 MB

Thanks to Troki for sending me this great show.


Note: I left the EQ at a setting that was more enhanced than the original, but at the same time 'neutral' enough for those who prefer fuller high ends (or low ends). A simple EQ tweak or adjustment should be all that is needed to satisfy personal preferences.

If clapping were a dollar, i'd be one rich MOfro!! I'll love it anyways.

Subject: Great Show!
I agree that the crowd and band energy were totally gnarly for this show...and the sound is awesome; not too much bass and the crowd noise adds to the music more than it takes away from it. The music and the vocals are balanced, unlike some other recordings I've downloaded. And is it just me or do these guys keep getting better and better all the time?

This show is incredible, one of my favorites - some really sweet jams...

thanks again to troki for taping this and for allowing me to master/seed it...



PS. to the previous review(s): lack of bass? please refer to the notes at the bottom of this page concerning the EQ adjustments and mastering. i never circulate recordings with NR or "excessive" EQ alterations. it seems like one person in particular seems to complain about 'lack of bass' with all of their other reviews for other shows....hmmmmm, interesting...check it out :)

Subject: very good
some great versions, sound overall ok, annoyances reduced to repetitive clapping on some tracks. features sunshine by matt costa on fall line. too bad this one (as most live recordings here) lacks some of the bass that sounds so good on jack johnson tracks.

Reviewer: digaditch - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - May 23, 2006
Subject: Great Sound
This recording is great because the show has high energy from both jack and the crowd, and the crowd noise is minimal. You can tell that the French fans are more into the show than many of the american shows where 15 yr old girls talk the entire show. Grab this recording!!

Subject: This show WROCKS!
A big set is coming in ! I've been listening to the suff that's on here from 2005 and I think this is far and away the best Jack show that I've heard. Jack is really hitting his stride. It's obvious he's having as much fun as the crowd is. It doesn't sound like he's tired of doing his hits yet and the band sounds great. The uptempo bubbletoes is a treat. I am so stoked on this show. I can only imagine in a few years when he has more material.:) The sound is fantastic now if only I could get some help with flac so I could burn this and listen to it in the car... See ya in the lineup! yeeeeaaahh sounds like Jack's decided to throw in his lot with HIPPIE!

not sure if my comments are going through, but anyways...this is a great show, great recording -
i dig it

Reviewer: Tyler - favoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - May 12, 2006
Subject: Very suprised by this JJ show. Totally different / new sound of the band!
This show renewed my interest in seeing Jack Johnson live in concert after my 2 year hiatus of his shows.
I had to quit jack. after 15 shows or so since the very beggining of his career in music, I just had to stop going to the shows. They were all sounding identical and had no variation from tour to tour. same sound, same songs (regardless if an album came out or not) and just uninspired sounds. I could appreciate it for what it was and I loved it, but after that many shows I had had enough. but giving this show a shot made me dig him again. really sounds like a more practiced / more diverse sound, and definately in a good directly. More complex and more textured music.
sounds like the taper is kinda far back. jack's vocals are kinda hollow. Sounds like a very large outdoor amp. the keys adds a new sound (Zach Gill from ALO, now an official band member). Adam Topol puts a great drumming onto the sound.
the 'clapping along' crowd definately shows up a lot and it is moderately distracting but at least they don't do it constantly. 'do you remember' now is kinda funky and groovy, rather then the simplistic / weird tempo'd studio verison on 'in between dreams'.
other reviewer said 'Zach, Dan and Dave Brogen with Jack' so i'm not sure what instruments they are playing, and now i'm not even sure if it is adam topol on the drums. this drummer sounds different stylistically then Adam's more mellow / laid back style. this show definately sounds like an 'alo show featureing jack johnson'
cool new lyrics at the end of 'do you remember?'. jack just plows through them and doesn't talk much between songs, as usual.
don't really like how 'symbol in my driveway' has turned into with the 'humming'. 'Staple it together' really smokes with the piano! really uptempo.
Dan Liebowitz from ALO comes out starting with D1t10 'constellations' adds a petal steel / lap guitar. 'breakdown' has a cool harp / flugohorn intro that really adds to it. Jack even mentions mid-song that he wrote it on a train going to france. The 2nd guitarist really adds a lot to the sound.
'Rodeo Clowns' starts out sounding more like a salsa / flamenco style on that 2nd guitar, and then the piano does the same style / notes. Dan Leaves after 'rodeo clowns'
'bubble toes' has a great few lines from 'Express Yourself' that JJ used to throw into that song in the early years. he didn't get to the chorus, but it was a nice treat.
'wasting time' has some 'sad to know you're leaving' tag lines, but again, jack doesn't get to the chorus. also, it doestn' really 'fit' with the tempo he plays it at. I liked it better when he did it at the tempo of the original version
"Dave Broken" comes on stage after 'tomorrow morning'. and starts on 'gone' which suprisingly seems 'off' and isn't a good version. "Belle" is a perfect fit for the location (france) since it is in french. 'girl i wanna lay you down' is a fun ALO song with jack dueting and an extra set of verse in the song.
'horizon' has a little bit of a different flair, and the white stripes 'doorbell' tag is a fun addition. and then right into 'good people'.
"No other way" is jack solo acoustic. "Fall Line" is Jack and Matt Costa. great version and then they transition to the matt costa song "Sunshine".
"better together' starts with jack trying to sing the first verse in french. he gets about one verse in and then laughs and has to go back to english. he does go back to the french during the chorus. the song also has an additional set of lyrics he put in the song that fit really well. it is jack solo as well.
show was about 01:45:00 total.

Subject: Awesome show, bad fans?
I believe this is an awesome show on Jack's behalf and listening to it gets me very excited to hear more of his latest work.

However the audience in this show kills me with all the clapping. It might be just me, but I get really irritated after listening to the clapping for just a short bit. This completely ruined an awesome show and an awesome recording for me.

I don't chime in much but I was particularly upset with this point I figured I'd see if anyone else caught it or if I am just too picky.

Wow! I feel like I have been in a bubble. This is the first exposure I have had to his music. Sitting here with my Bose Headphones on...the wife and kid are asleep...and I find myself almost pulling the headphones jack out of the back of the I am dancing like a hippie in the front row of a dead concert....

This show is amazing. Easily one of the best recordings I've heard. Great set list, Great Jack. A must listen.

Perfect bootlegs which sumerise all album of Jack, perfect sound with the noisy crowd away... Setlist is almost perfect. Ok jack forget his word one or two time during the concert.. maybe because he was surprise of the attention from the crowd. The only litle bad point for me is the lack of bass.

Thanks again jack for this concert. And thanks to the guys who record it and put on line... Thanks also to Ron for his website with many materials about the concert (Pics, videos..)

Subject: crispy in paris
hey wow great job .nice and cripsy ...

i love the cheers for zachs first solo and then the croud gets quiet ..the paris kids know how to enjoy the music

here is the link to the tour blog with pics

The French crowd was by far the loudest and simultaneously, most attentive crowd of the tour! These people know how to attend a concert, give their undivided attention and bellow cheers at the perfect moments. Even Jack mentioned how it was the first crowd that cheered properly for a guitar solo (by Dan Lebowitz). The sold out crowd of 7,000 rivaled the sounds of the 15,000 person crowds in the UK. Unfortunately, ALO could not play for paperwork complications, but all members of their band performed (Steve with Matt Costa, and Zach, Dan and Dave Brogen with Jack). Highlights of Jack's performance was the tour debut of "ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂDreams Be Dreams" and a double encore after Jack'ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂs acoustic tunes with the full band performing Sublime's ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂ"ÃÂÃÂÃÂÃÂBadfish>Boss DJ" and closing with Inaudible Melodies.

This is the first recording I've heard with Jack and a FULL band. The piano & folk harp are incredible additions. This is a Must have for all Jack fans.
